Hello Everyone,

The home stretch!  Finals are quickly approaching and many new students have signed up to receive tutoring from us in order to finish the year strong.

SAT Prep Programs

Several new students have also signed up for our SAT Programs.  The SAT Test is likely the biggest test any student will have to take.  We have developed a very practical approach to develop a students understanding of what it takes to be successful on the SAT Test.  To find out more about our SAT Programs, click here – http://thecatutoringsolution.com/satprep.html

Community Outreach

On Saturday, May 21, I will be presenting at The 22nd Annual GATE Together Workshop.  I will be conducting a series of classes entitled, “How to Write a Blog,” aimed at 4th through 6th graders.  My 4th grade GATE teacher, Mrs. Krupnick, invited me to present at the workshop.  I’m extremely happy and excited to be involved in a program that had such an overwhelming influence in my life, almost 20 years ago.

I have also been in contact with Natasha Bayus from School on Wheels who has asked me to develop a presentation to give to volunteer tutors on increasing motivation in students.  School on Wheels is a non-profit organization that provides free tutoring for homeless children.  In 2010, they tutored more than 1,400 students.  To find out more about School on Wheels, visit their website, http://www.schoolonwheels.org/pages/100/.
